Welgevonden Game Reserve,(Dutch for “well found”), in the Waterberg plateau, borders with the Marakele National Park and is a stone’s throw from Nylsvlei Wetlands. It forms part of the Waterberg Biosphere Reserve which was officially declared by UNESCO in 2001 and currently covers an area in excess of 4000 km². The Reserve’s beautiful, varied topography ranges from broad rolling hills to magnificent red sandstone cliffs, perennial rivers, open plains and savannahs, while its abundance of wildlife –it is home to over 50 different mammals, including the Big Five. The diversity of habitat leads to a wide range of wildlife with grassy plains abounding with antelope from the largest eland to the diminutive duiker; and cheetah, lion and leopard are regularly seen close by. There are also numerous rare and unusual species such as brown hyena, aardwolf, pangolin and aardvark – all best seen at night. Over 300 bird species can be seen on the reserve, including rare blue cranes which breed in the southern section early in the year. The reserve boasts one of the largest populations of white rhino of any of Africa’s private reserves, as well as kudu, giraffe, zebra, warthog, cheetah, brown hyena, the honey badger. As a restricted number of vehicles are allowed in the park and the animals have never been hunted ensures that they remain largely unperturbed by human proximity, which allows allowing for particularly close and personal encounters. The Waterberg also has a rich human history, evidenced by two San rock paintings dating back to possibly thousands of years. Welgevonden is an easy two and a half hour drive or a 45 minute flight from Johannesburg, making it one of the most accessible premier wilderness reserves in the country.
